Jaguar Targets IPad Generation With Cheaper $44,000 Sedan – Bloomberg
This is also of Jay’s, basking in the Burbank sunlight. One is owned by the Detroit Historical Museum. It is no longer being kept like this but for a while, it was stored in a bubble. And here it is naked. This same car can be seen today at the Gilmore museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. Where some knucklehead has managed to ding the paint on the deck lid (it was not chipped when I saw it at the DHM). Chrysler owns two (they used to have three but they sold one to Jay).

Read More Close Open Photographer: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg Tata Motors Ltd.s Jaguar Land Rover unit is investing 3.5 billion pounds in the year through March to broaden its lineup amid stiffening competition. Jaguar is introducing a new entry-level sedan, challenging Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) s most popular model, as part of a push to triple sales by building vehicles more people can afford. The XE saloon, as the car style is known in the U.K., will be Jaguars cheapest vehicle at about 27,000 pounds ($44,000) when it goes on sale next year to rival the likes of the BMW 3-Series. The car is a critical test of Jaguars ability to compete for entry-level luxury buyers after halting production of the X-Type last decade because of disappointing sales. The car, which marks the first model built on new aluminum underpinnings, represents a bet-the-house gamble, said Max Warburton , an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein Ltd.

For Greenbrae sibs, lemonade campaign bears fruit with refurbished basketball court – Marin Independent Journal
The sticking point was moving the cumbersome pieces that, because of the size, required the closure of the BNSF rail line so oversize rail cars could be employed. The terminal, completed in 2008, now enables delivery of Boeings 787, 777X, 747 and 767 parts. Mohr credits the nimbleness of the skilled labor force with this achievement and also pinpoints this as enabling the port to shift emphasis from wood products to break bulk cargo handling. I came from wood products ports, Mohr said referring to his former positions at the port in Olympia along with ports in Newport and Coos Bay, Oregon. When the Asian market sought wood elsewhere (than the U.S.) we knew we had to retool our business plan to go after other cargoes. With Everett longshoreman already handling heavy cargo and bulk cargo, including grain and oil, Mohr set his sights on securing special project cargoes that are one of a kind pieces.

The Herald Business Journal: Port chief’s retirement leaves void
(Frankie Frost/Marin Independent Journal) 5 The ball wouldn’t bounce straight, the hoops hung crookedly, and a fall carried a high risk of drawing blood while playing basketball at Greenbrae School Park. “We used to come down here all the time to play, and the hoops were not up to the par,” said Jack Evershed, 14. So, with their neighborhood court in desperate need of fixing, Jack and his younger brother, Jamie, set out to make that happen, by raising enough money to resurface the gravely asphalt and make the hoops stand a straight 10-feet tall, with nets hanging from the rims. After three years of running a lemonade stand, receiving donations from neighbors and getting local governments to pitch in, the Evershed boys and their Greenbrae neighbors celebrated their refurbished court Sunday, during a community picnic and dedication ceremony. “After a while, you start to think, ‘Ah, it’s not going to happen,'” Jack, now a freshman at Redwood High School, said.
